CNN’s Zakaria on Syria Strikes: ‘Donald Trump Became President of the United States’ Last Night (Washington Free Beacon)

CNN host and longtime Donald Trump critic Fareed Zakaria praised the president Friday morning after he ordered cruise missile strikes on a Syrian airfield believed to be used for a chemical weapons attack on civilians.

"It is day 78 of the Trump presidency. What changed last night?" asked Alisyn Camerota, host of CNN's "New Day."

"I think Donald Trump became president of the United States," Zakaria responded. "I think this was actually a big moment."

Zakaria noted that Trump had resisted the notion of military action against Syria throughout the course of the 2016 campaign.
